Danilo Kis
Birth: Feb. 22, 1935
Death: Oct. 15, 1989

Writer. His mother was Montenegrin and his father Jewish, so he is most often described as a Serbian writer. After World War II, in which several members of his family were killed, he studied literature in Belgrade. He spent much of the rest of his life in Paris, where he died of cancer. Many of his works concentrate on wartime persecution of "small," innocent people, often though not exclusively Jews. His fiction learns a great deal from Latin American literature of the 20th century, but he has a distinctive view of the bizarre and fantastic components of everyday reality. Among his works are "A Tomb for Boris Davidovich," "Garden, Ashes," "Hourglass," and. "Encyclopedia of the Dead." (bio by: Jelena)
